Guide to the Scenic Rim
A ring of dramatic mountain ranges and World Heritage-listed rainforests circling farmland valleys, Queensland’s Scenic Rim is an easy drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Straddling an ancient volcanic caldera in the lush hinterland of south-east Queensland, the Scenic Rim is home to the northernmost sections of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area. Bushwalking trails through the Scenic Rim’s six national parks lead to natural rock pools, waterfalls, lookouts and ridges with sweeping views of distant peaks, while the valleys nestled within the ring of mountain ranges are dotted with charming country towns. After a day spent immersed in sublime natural beauty, relax at one of the region’s luxury lodges and enjoy the delicious produce of the valley’s fertile food bowl with one of the tasty local wines.
